Gone Classical or Rollover Wagner

With digital compilations like “Bleeding Chunks of Wagner” Naxos is aiming to connect with listeners beyond the classical crowd. The title of the downloadable album is “Bleeding Chunks of Wagner,” a reference to an oft-quoted passage written in 1935 by English classical music critic Donald Tovey: “Defects of form are not a justifiable ground for criticism from listeners who profess to enjoy the bleeding chunks of butcher’s meat chopped from Wagner’s operas.” Cover photo, Chas Ray Krider’s Red Meat on Green Shag, was selected by Collin J Rae.  Read on more at LA TImes. “Bleeding Chunks of Wagner” can be down loaded at iTune
